Alpine A290

New 2024 Alpine A290
Thrilling electric small car hot hatch will take the fight ot the new MINI Cooper Electric when it arrives in 2025

Type: small hot hatch | On sale: 2025 | Starting price: £30,000 (est) 

The Alpine A290 Beta concept car is our first look at a high-performance small car hot hatch from the sporty French brand that’s due on sale in 2025. Derived from the excitingly reborn new Renault 5 EV, it’s likely to have over 200PS for strong performance, while Alpine has stressed it’s also keen to deliver engaging handling. It will all be wrapped up in a really exciting-looking five-door hatchback bodyshell, with plenty of spoilers, large alloy wheels and even air intakes on the rear doors that we would love to see make production. One thing that won’t, though, is the concept car’s central driving position. Instead, expect a more conventional layout for this Ford Fiesta-sized car that we can’t wait to drive.

Audi A6 e-tron

Audi A6 e-tron front-three quarter
The four-door Audi A6 e-tron concept car

Type: electric car | On sale: early 2024 | Starting price: from £55,000 (est)

The Audi A6 e-tron gives you everything you love about the Audi A6 – its beautifully built and eerily quiet cabin, and general comfort – but with electric power. It’ll have an aerodynamic design on the outside and an infotainment-heavy finish on the inside, which will feel very roomy thanks to the car’s completely flat interior floor. A 100kWh battery gives the Audi a range of more than 300 miles, while front and rear electric motors produce 476PS in total giving the A6 e-tron acceleration of 0-62mph in under four seconds.  

Audi Q7

New 2024 Audi Q7: Price, specs and release date
The new Audi Q7 has more upmarket styling and improved infotainment tech that now includes third-party apps.

Type: luxury SUV | On sale: March 2024 | Starting price: £66,605

The new Audi Q7 sees the firm's range-topping luxury SUV move even further upmarket. It is visually marked out by a jewel-like new grille, plus the availability of ultra-bright laser lights at the front. Both front and rear lights are also available with futuristic new digital tech. There are new colours on the outside, and within, the infotainment system is now available with third-party apps such as Spotify and Amazon Music. The existing powerful petrol and diesel engines remain, along with the V8 Audi SQ7 range-topper, and prices start from £66,605. 

BMW X2 and iX2

The new BMW X2 is a stylish sister car to the BMW X1 – and includes an all-electric iX2 version for the first time.

Type: SUV and electric SUV | On sale: March 2024 | Starting price: from £39,395

The new BMW X2 and iX2 are the sporty alternatives to the popular BMW X1 and iX1 small family SUV. The X2 has a choice of two petrol engines, including a sporty new BMX X2 M35i xDrive, while the new BMW iX2 is all-electric and has a range of up to 266 miles. While it’s based on the BMW X1, the new BMW X2 and iX2 have more assertive styling, including a swooping coupe-like rear. This does trade a little practicality, but means it will turn heads – and there’s still enough space inside for five. The new BMW X2 and iX2 will take on rivals such as the Audi Q3 Sportback, the Range Rover Evoque and the Volvo XC40 and C40. The new BMW X2 will cost from £39,365 and new BMW iX2 prices start from £56,540.

BMW 5 Series Touring and i5 Touring

2024 BMW i5 Touring: front dynamic
The new BMW 5 Series Touring is a stylish new executive estate car – which will be available as an electric new BMW i5 Touring for the first time

Type: estate car | On sale: May 2024 | Starting price: £69,040

The new BMW 5 Series Touring and i5 Touring are premium new estate cars that offer more space, luxury and refinement than ever before. The new BMW 5 Series Touring is a plug-in hybrid, while the new BMW i5 Touring is the first-ever electric BMW 5 Series estate. This version has an EV range of up to 348 miles – and a high-performance new BMW i5 M60 Touring will accelerate from 0-62mph in just 3.9 seconds. Equipped with the latest in BMW digital touchscreen tech, both the new BMW 5 Series Touring and the i5 Touring share the same enlarged 570-litre boot. It expands to a voluminous 1700 litres with the rear seats folded. 

BMW M5 Touring

The BMW M5 Touring is a load-lugging version of the famed M5 saloon.

Type: performance estate | On sale: summer 2024 | Starting price: from £120,000 (est) 

We already rate the new BMW M5 Competition saloon highly, which makes the prospect of an all-new BMW M5 Competition Touring estate all the more tantalising. Set to use the same 600ps 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, its abilities will be enhanced yet further by xDrive all-wheel drive. This will make it a formidable alternative to the acclaimed new Audi RS6 Avant. Set to arrive here in summer 2024, all this will come at a price, mind. We estimate it will cost upwards of £120,000. But for many enthusiasts and keen car collectors, it's bound to be worth it. 

Citroen e-C3

The new Citroen e-C3 aims to be one of the UK’s most affordable real-world electric cars when it arrives in 2024.

Type: small electric car | On sale:  2024 | Starting price: from under £23,000 (est) 

The new Citroen e-C3 aims to help make electric motoring more affordable for the masses. A small electric car with five doors and space for five adults, prices are set to start from under £23,000 for the neatly-styled, crossover-look new Citroen e-C3. This will provide stern competition to the Renault Zoe, new Dacia Spring Electric and the Vauxhall Corsa Electric. It will have a decent electric car range too, with the new Citroen e-C3’s 44kWh battery promising an official range of 199 miles. It will be able to use powerful 100kW DC public rapid chargers, too. On sale in 2024, an even more affordable new Citroen e-C3 may follow in 2025, with a suggested price tag of under £17,500.

Dacia Duster

The new Dacia Duster is an even more rugged and sophisticated family SUV from this ever-popular value-oriented brand.

Type: small SUV | On sale: spring 2024 | Starting price: from under £20,000 (est) 

The new Dacia Duster has a refreshing new extra-rugged appearance that aims to underline its lifestyle-friendly appeal. Based on a space-efficient new platform, the Dacia Duster will have more space and practicality for five inside, and a new dashboard design that’s stylish and better-quality. The new Dacia Duster will also be available with a hybrid engine, alongside a punchy 1.2-litre petrol engine. Both 4x4 all-wheel drive and money-saving LPG Bi-Fuel options will be available. Set to challenge a brace of small SUVs from the best-selling Ford Puma and Volkswagen T-Roc, to the value-priced MG ZS and Suzuki S-Cross, the new Dacia Duster will make its official public debut in March 2024 ahead of arriving in UK showrooms in the spring.  

Dacia Bigster

Dacia Bigster
Dacia's Bigster SUV could cost as little as £30,000

Type: SUV | On sale: 2025 | Starting price: from £30,000 (est) 

The Dacia Bigster is big by name and, well, big by nature – at 4.6m long it’ll be the biggest car Dacia makes when it’s revealed later in 2024 ahead of going on sale in early 2025. It won’t cost a fortune though, with Dacia targeting an entry price of under £30,000. That’ll buy you an SUV with chunky good looks and an interior that’ll have loads of space and could be offered with seven seats. Dacia has also indicated that the car will be offered as a plug-in hybrid that’ll have a 30-mile electric range that could save you a fortune if you have a charger at home and do lots of short trips. 

Dacia Spring Electric

New 2024 Dacia Spring EV
If you're looking for a cheap EV, then Dacia's Spring Electric could be it

Type: small electric car | On sale: early 2024 | Starting price: from under £20,000 (est) 

The Dacia Spring Electric – the Romanian firm’s first electric car – wasn’t originally destined for the UK but burgeoning EV sales look to have reversed that decision. So what can you expect? Well, in a word, value. It’s restricted to 78mph to help it achieve its 140-mile range, which is below average for a modern EV, but a price tag of well under £20,000 – considerably less than a Renault Zoe – makes up for that. Everything else is as you’d expect of a Dacia, it uses old Renault parts and has a cabin that is surprisingly roomy for its size. Could be the budget EV you’ve been waiting for.

Ford Kuga

New 2024 Ford Kuga
The Ford Kuga has been refreshed for 2024 with bolder styling and updated infotainment.

Type: family SUV | On sale: spring 2024 | Starting price: £32,080

The new Ford Kuga is a facelifted and refreshed version of the firm's super-popular family SUV. It's already on sale, with prices starting from £32,080, and first deliveries will begin in the spring. Surprisingly, it's cheaper than the outgoing model, and is set to be just as good to drive. Along with the fresh front end, which includes a full-width LED light bar, the big updates come inside. The latest Ford Sync4 infotainment has a much larger 13.2-inch touchscreen, has twice the computing power and even has 5G connectivity. Naturally, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard too. As before, the new Ford Kuga offers a choice of petrol, hybrid or plug-in hybrid engines. 

Ford Puma

New 2024 Ford Puma
The new Ford Puma has subtly enhanced styling and an all-new interior that gives it a more sophisticated feel.

Type: small SUV | On sale: now | Starting price: £25,790 

The new Ford Puma is a refreshed version of a British best-seller. It was the most popular new car of all in 2023 and is continuing to be a top choice in 2024. To keep it at the top of new car buyers' shopping lists, Ford has enhanced the Puma for 2024 with tweaked styling, a fashionable new colour option and an all-new interior. The improved dashboard has bigger touchscreen tech and a higher-quality feel, while improvements to standard features and safety assist tech make it an even more impressive all-rounder. The spacious interior and extra-large boot remain key selling points too. 

Ford Explorer

New 2023 Ford Explorer static
New Ford Explorer aims to blend American style with electric car performance and efficiency.

Type: electric family SUV | On sale: summer 2024 | Starting price: from £40,000 (est) 

The new Ford Explorer is a very important electric family SUV for this best-selling brand. Developed with the help of Volkswagen, it is closely related to the VW ID.4 under the skin, but the design outside and in is pure Ford. It pays tribute to the brand’s American roots with a fun, standout look and a high-tech interior. There will be a range of powertrains, including a rear-wheel drive entry-level model with a 218-mile range, and a larger 82kWh battery with a range of up to 335 miles. A high-performance all-wheel drive model will have 335PS for vivid acceleration. It was due to go on sale in 2023, but it has been delayed to summer 2024 to give Ford time to meet new green battery regulations.

Ford Mustang

2023 Ford Mustang
The new Ford Mustang gets a sharper and more edgier look.

Type: sports car | On sale: early 2024 | Starting price: from £55,000 (est)

The famous Mustang muscle car is getting an update for 2024 and will retain it's petrol-powered engines, with the mighty 5.0-litre V8 available with the new car. The new Mustang gets an all-new appearance, with a meaner and moodier front end, though it still very much looks like a Mustang. Things have changed inside too, with a new open-plan look that sees a large 12.4-inch digital instrument display. Prices are still to be confirmed, but expect it to cost more than the outgoing model. 

Honda CR-V

New 2023 Honda CR-V
The new Honda CR-V has moved upmarket to offer family SUV buyers more of a luxury car feel – and create space in the range for the new Honda ZR-V.

Type: family SUV | On sale: early 2024 | Starting price: from £45,895

The new Honda CR-V is the latest generation of the firm’s long-running range-topping family SUV. This generation moves even further upmarket, with classy styling and a premium feel to the interior – which is extremely well-equipped even in entry-level Elegance grade. The new Honda CR-V now has an all-hybrid range of petrol engines. Choose either the e:HEV hybrid, or the e:PHEV plug-in hybrid, which has a pure electric range of more than 50 miles. Both have the same 184PS power output. The new Honda CR-V is safer than ever, with an enhanced range of safety assist tech, which will help it take on rivals such as the Toyota RAV4, Ford Kuga and Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Hyundai Santa Fe

The new Hyundai Santa Fe has a very bold and dramatic new look that will guarantee it stands out on the road.

Type: large SUV | On sale:  2024 | Starting price: £50,000 (est)

The new Hyundai Santa Fe is an all-new large SUV that will immediately become one of the most distinctive-looking models on the road when it arrives here in the first half of 2024. The square, blocky appearance is extremely modern, and liberates a huge amount of interior space for this seven-seat SUV. It will provide formidable competition to the Land Rover Defender and Discovery, the new Toyota Land Cruiser and its in-house rival, the Kia Sorento. Two versions will be offered, both with a 1.6-litre turbo engine – buyers can choose either hybrid or plug-in hybrid, the latter with a 36-mile pure electric range. Rugged 4x4 running gear will give plenty of off-road capability, too.

Mercedes-Benz CLE

2024 Mercedes-Benz CLE
The new Mercedes-Benz CLE is a sleek replacement for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe and E-Class Coupe models.

Type: coupe | On sale: spring 2024 | Starting price: from £46,605

The new Mercedes-Benz CLE is a sleek, luxurious two-door coupe that replaces both C-Class Coupe and E-Class Coupe models. It takes on two direct rivals, the BMW 4 Series and Audi A5, with a range of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid engines. With ultra-smooth exterior styling and a high-end, tech-packed interior, the new Mercedes-Benz CLE undoubtedly oozes showroom appeal. It should be spacious inside too, despite only having two doors – this gives it the classic coupe profile. That plug-in hybrid, which arrives later in 2024, ensures good eco credentials too. Thanks to an extra-large battery, it will have a pure electric range of at least 62 miles.

MINI Cooper

New 2024 MINI Cooper: Price, specs and release date
The new MINI Cooper has a more minimalist design and will be offered with a choice of petrol engines to complement the new MINI Cooper Electric.

Type: small car | On sale: 2024 | Starting price: £23,090

The new MINI Cooper is a petrol-powered alternative to the new MINI Cooper Electric that also arrives in 2024. Now on sale with prices from £23,090, there are two versions, the new MINI Cooper C with a 156PS engine and the new MINI Cooper S with a 204PS engine. The new MINI Cooper has a modern but still familiar look, and an all-new interior with an innovative round OLED touchscreen. This brings the famous look of the classic Mini bang up-to-date. Expect plenty of customisation options too, with the new MINI Cooper available with three distinct packages, called Classic, Exclusive and Sport. 

MINI Cooper Electric

New 2024 MINI Cooper Electric
Next-gen MINI Cooper Electric is the EV alternative to the petrol-powered new MINI Cooper and arrives in 2024.

Type: electric small car | On sale: 2024 | Starting price: £29,000

The new 2024 MINI Electric aims to be the most high-tech MINI ever. To be sold purely as a 3-door, the new MINI Electric will be built in China, and sold here with a choice of two batteries, either 40kWh (for a range of 190 miles) or 50kWh for a 250-mile range. Both are significant improvements on today’s MINI Electric. There will be both 184PS Cooper E and 218PS Cooper SE versions. The new MINI Electric will have a more spacious interior, with a high-tech round central touchscreen, while the rest of it will be purer and more minimalist. It will still look like a traditional MINI though – and the new MINI Electric will still drive like a fun, nimble go-kart, too.

MINI Aceman

New 2024 MINI Aceman
The new MINI Aceman is an all-new small crossover positioned below the MINI Countryman

Type: electric SUV | On sale: late 2024 | Starting price: from £35,000

The new MINI Aceman is an exciting new small SUV alternative to the upcoming new MINI Cooper Electric.

A smaller alternative to the MINI Countryman, the MINI Aceman will offer a choice of electric motors along with two sizes of battery, for a potential range of up to 250 miles. Edgy, modern styling on the outside is backed up by a minimalist interior designed around a high-tech round central touchscreen display. It will have eco-friendly textiles too, with MINI promising no leather or chrome. Prices for the new Volvo EX30 and Jeep Avenger rival are likely to start from around £35,000. 

Polestar 4

New 2024 Polestar 4: Price, specs and release date
The Polestar 4 is a very important new electric SUV that will take on rivals such as the new Porsche Macan electric.

Type: electric SUV | On sale: now | Starting price: from £59,900

The new Polestar 4 is a very important electric SUV for the sporty EV firm. Positioned above the popular Polestar 2, and below the luxury Polestar 3, the new Polestar 4 aims to challenge premium electric SUVs such as the Ford Mustang Mach-e GT and new Porsche Macan. There will be two versions from launch, each with a generous 100kWh battery giving a range of up to 380 miles. Prices start from £59,900 – and when it arrives later this summer, it will become the UK's first car to go on sale without a rear window. How do you see out the back? Through a clever roof-mounted camera system, that feeds a display where the rear-view mirror normally is. 

Polestar 3

New Polestar 3 2023
Could the Polestar 3 prove just as successful as the Polestar 2?

Type: electric SUV | On sale: early 2024 | Starting price: from £79,900 

Polestar has transformed itself from a maker of fast Volvos to a standalone builder of PHEV and EVs with sensational success (the Polestar 2 for example) – proving just how electrification can transform a brand – and the Polestar 3 is the next step in this process. It gives buyers an SUV option to take on the likes of the Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X. The new Polestar 3 has a minimalist (but confident) design, as well as a beautifully styled interior with room for four. It'll have a range of 379 miles, all-wheel drive and acceleration of 0-62mph in less than five seconds. Competitive finance packages will balance its meaty £79,900 price. 

Porsche Macan

New 2024 Porsche Macan
The new Porsche Macan makes the switch to pure electric power for the first time, with an EV range of up to 380 miles.

Type: electric SUV | On sale: now | Starting price: from £69,800

The new Porsche Macan switches to an all-electric line-up for 2024. From launch, there will be two versions, each using a high-capacity 100kWh battery. The new Porsche Macan 4 will have a 380-mile range, and even the new Porsche Macan Turbo will have a 367-mile range – despite boasting 639PS for 0-62mph performance in just 3.3 seconds. From the outside, the new Porsche Macan is a bolder, simpler evolution of the current petrol-powered Porsche Macan (which remains on sale for those not yet ready to go fully electric). Inside, it has a high-tech interior with up to three screens, including one on the passenger side that can load third-party apps and stream video. Open for ordering now, with prices from £69,800, the new Porsche Macan arrives towards the summertime. 

Porsche Taycan

New 2024 Porsche Taycan
The new Porsche Taycan has a honed appearance and improved battery tech that gives it a much longer electric range.

The new Porsche Taycan has been enhanced for 2024 with a headline-grabbing boost to its electric range of up to 35%. Owners will be able to travel for much longer between charges, and be more entertained along the way courtesy of new interior tech that includes a clever video streaming feature for passengers. The driver will also enjoy much-reduced acceleration times across the range, with the fastest new Porsche Taycan now offering 0-62mph performance in just 2.4 seconds. The Porsche Taycan luxury electric car continues to be offered in three distinct styles – Sport Saloon, Sport Turismo and Cross Turismo – with a choice of different power outputs, battery sizes and drive types. 

Range Rover Electric

New 2024 Range Rover Electric
The new Range Rover Electric will be a super-refined pure EV version of the famous luxury SUV

Type: luxury SUV | On sale: 2024 | Starting price: from £125,000 (est) 

The new Range Rover Electric is a pure EV version of the world-famous luxury car. Set to offer a range of more than 300 miles plus ultra-fast charging courtesy of its high-tech 800V architecture, the new Range Rover Electric is one of the most hotly anticipated new SUVs of 2024. It will offer staggering refinement and plentiful performance, while the British firm also promises peerless off-road ability (and a huge 850mm wading depth). It won’t come cheap, with prices likely to start from around £125,000, but it will be a world-class machine that aims to set new standards. If you're keen to be among the first to own one, the waiting list is now open. 

Renault Twingo

New 2026 Renault Twingo small electric car
The new Renault Twingo is a retro revival that aims to create a new class of ultra-affordable city-friendly electric car.

Type: small electric car | On sale: 2026 | Starting price: from £17,000 

The charming little Renault Twingo is making a comeback – as a super-affordable all-electric car. Sitting below the new electric Renault 5 and Renault 5, the new Renault Twingo will take on other affordable EVs such as the new Dacia Spring and Citroen 3-C3. It’s being built on a high-tech new platform and will have a right-sized battery that delivers a range of around 150-200 miles – perfect for the city centre use it’s being designed for. And by optimising the design and battery size, prices will be kept affordable. Bosses are talking about a starter price of around £17,000, or from around £85 a month, which really would help open up electric cars to an entirely new audience. Best of all, it’s set to have a retro appearance that harks back to the beloved 1990s original – both outside and in.

Renault 5

Renault 5 Prototype front three quarter
The prototype Renault 5 enjoys a retro design reminiscent of the original Renault 5

Type: small electric car | On sale: mid 2024 | Starting price: from £25,000 (est) 

The new Renault 5 will bring two worlds together – fusing EV power with a body design that’s a modern interpretation of the original Renault 5 that went on sale way back in the 70s. Expect the interior to be much the same with a simple, retro design made possible by two large infotainment screens. The Renault will have a relatively large 50kWh battery giving it a range of around 250 miles – much further than rivals such as the MINI Electric and Honda e. It's likely to cost around £25,000.

Renault 4

New Renault 4Ever Trophy electric SUV.
The production version of the new Renault 4Ever Trophy will be released in 2025.

Type: small electric SUV | On sale: 2025 | Starting price: from £30,000 (est) 

The Renault 4 will be reborn in 2025 as an electric compact SUV. It has been previewed by an exciting Renault 4Ever Trophy concept, which shows how the rugged, beloved 1960s classic will be reinvented for the electric era. Expect a roomy interior, latest-generation technology and a decent driving range of around 250 miles from its 50kWh battery. By not going too big on battery size, prices should be kept in check; expect them to start from around £30,000. And if it’s too big for you, no fear: the Renault 5 three-door supermini from the 1980s will be reborn in 2024 as a retro EV for the modern era, too.

Skoda Superb

New 2024 Skoda Superb
The executive-style new look for the range-topping Skoda Superb reflects its flagship hatchback and estate car status better than ever.

Type: large car | On sale: early 2024 | Starting price: from £35,000 (est)

The upscale new Skoda Superb is the latest range-topping hatchback and estate from this ever-popular brand. Already an impressive all-rounder, the new Skoda Superb aims to set the bar even higher for comfort, refinement and sophistication, taking the fight to rivals such as the Volkswagen Passat and Peugeot 408 in the process. There will be a comprehensive range of engines, including petrol and diesel, plus a first-ever Skoda Superb hybrid, and a plug-in hybrid with an EV range of over 62 miles. The new Skoda Superb will, staggeringly, be even roomier than the hugely spacious current car too, with the hatch offering a massive 645-litre boot, which grows to an even larger 690 litres in estate guise. It all comes wrapped within a crisp-edged new design that’s even more executive on the outside and even higher-quality on the inside.

Skoda Kodiaq

The family-friendly Skoda Kodaiq gets a rich new look that should take this well-liked seven-seater even further upmarket.

Type: large SUV | On sale: early 2024 | Starting price: from £35,000

The second-generation new Skoda Kodiaq aims to continue the well-deserved success of the current car. A large, family-sized 7-seater SUV, the Kodiaq is renowned for being very practical and a great all-rounder for most types of motoring. These are all qualities that will be enhanced further in the new one. Looking more upmarket than the current car, the new Skoda Kodiaq’s more premium appearance carried through inside, where there is a welcoming blend of quality plastics, appealing textiles and eye-catching metal highlights. The infotainment screen is bigger than ever – as are the rear seats, which offer enhanced all-round room in the second and third rows. The new Skoda Kodiaq offers a broad range of petrol and diesel engines, plus an extended-range plug-in hybrid for the first time. The firm expects an EV range of more than 62 miles, which should certainly give 7-seater rivals such as the Nissan X-Trail, SEAT Tarraco and Land Rover Discovery Sport something to think about.

Suzuki Swift

New 2024 Suzuki Swift
The new Suzuki Swift has a more distinctive appearance with a piano black grille and cheeky wheelarch blisters.

Type: small car | On sale: spring 2024 | Starting price: from £18,000 (est) 

Meet the new Suzuki Swift, the fourth generation of the Japanese firm's popular, great-value supermini small car. It gains a smart new appearance with upmarket features such as a piano black grille and pronounced wheelarch blisters – a bit like those you find on a sporty Audi. And it's been completely overhauled inside, with a much better-looking dashboard complete with dual-tone plastics and posh metal-look inserts. Owners of the current Suzuki Swift will appreciate the much-improved touchscreen tech, too. Under the bonnet is a fuel-sipping 1.2-litre mild hybrid petrol engine, and you can even get grippy all-wheel drive as an option. Prices are bound to be competitive too, likely starting from around £18,000 when it goes on sale in spring 2024. 

Vauxhall Corsa Hybrid

New 2024 Vauxhall Corsa Hybrid
The new Vauxhall Corsa Hybrid is the first-ever Corsa to come with fuel-saving hybrid tech.

Type: small car | On sale: now | Starting price: £22,890 

The new Vauxhall Corsa Hybrid brings fuel-saving 'self-charging' hybrid technology to the Corsa small car line-up for the first time. It aims to be an alternative to the more expensive Vauxhall Corsa Electric EV. Compared to a regular Corsa with an automatic gearbox, the new Vauxhall Corsa Hybrid costs around £600 more, but offers 20% better fuel economy and much lower CO2 emissions. This will make it a competitive alternative to other pricier small hybrid cars, particularly as it benefits from the good-looking facelift also given to other Corsa models. 

Volkswagen ID.2

2025 Volkswagen ID Life (ID.2) front-three quarter exterior
The ID Life prototype hints at what we can expect the ID.2 to look like

Type: electric city car | On sale: mid 2025 | Starting price: from £20,000 (est) 

Whip out the long lens and you’ll just about see the Volkswagen ID.2 sauntering over the horizon – it’s a while away, but this Peugeot e-208 rival is still well worth talking about. The VW Group being the well-oiled machine it is, we already have an official sketch of how the car will look (good) and have an idea how much it will cost (about £20,000). That sounds cheap you say? It does doesn’t it. That price tag’s made possible by a tiny 30kWh battery that’ll be good for no more than 120 miles between charges. 

Volkswagen ID. GTI

New Volkswagen ID. GTI Concept
Volkswagen’s famous hot hatch will go all-electric in 2026 with a production version of the tantalising ID. GTI Concept.

Type: electric hot hatch | On sale: 2026 | Starting price: from £30,000 (est)

The new Volkswagen ID. GTI Concept is a hotly-anticipated new sporty electric car from the company that invented the hot hatch. Derived from the well-received 2025 Volkswagen ID.2all concept, the new ID. GTI will be VW’s first electric GTI and a car enthusiasts are already looking forward to driving. It will be a potent new alternative to a Tesla Model 3 and also take the fight to the potent new Hyundai Ioniq 5 N. It’s set to be surprisingly affordable too, with Volkswagen bosses hinting at prices that could start from £30,000. Will it mark a rebirth for the people’s sports car? Here’s hoping.

Volkswagen ID.3 GTX

Volkswagen ID.X
The ID.3 GTX will pack 200PS and offer all-wheel drive

Type: electric hot hatch | On sale: early 2024 | Starting price: from £40,000 (est) 

The Volkswagen ID.3 GTX EV is a hot hatch for the future with the ‘GTX’ badge set to replace the beloved ‘GTI’ as the letters VW sticks on its fast family cars. Which is slightly misleading because the ID.3 GTX is more like a Golf R in concept, thanks to having circa-200PS and all-wheel drive. Expect the GTX to be an absolute weapon on country roads where conventional petrols will find it hard to compete with the electric car's mid-range surge. Question is, can this plus-£40,000 EV be as fun as the hot hatches we know and love?

Volkswagen Golf

New 2024 Volkswagen Golf
The new Volkswagen Golf has improved infotainment and an enhanced plug-in hybrid offering an electric range of more than 60 miles

Type: family car | On sale: summer 2024 | Starting price: from £28,000 (est)

The new Volkswagen Golf aims to make the famous VW family car even more appealing and desirable. While the facelift doesn't alter the styling too much, bigger changes come inside. An all-new infotainment system is faster and easier to use, and available with extra-large screens of up to 12.9 inches – much larger than the current model. Engines are largely the same, save for the plug-in hybrid new Volkswagen Golf eHybrid. This version gets a much bigger battery, which is almost twice the size of the outgoing car, giving an electric driving range of over 60 miles. The new Volkswagn Golf arrives in the first half of this year and further details, including prices, should be revealed in the spring. 

Volkswagen Passat

New 2024 Volkswagen Passat
The new Volkswagen Passat is a modern-looking version of the firm's longest-serving car in its range.

Type: estate car | On sale: early 2024 | Starting price: from £37,000 (est)

The new Volkswagen Passat is the latest version of a famous model like that dates back to the 1970s – and which will now only be offered as a roomy, ultra-practical estate car. There have been numerous Passat iterations over the years, and it’s this all-new one that is the sleekest and most futuristic-looking yet. Just the thing to take on premium estate car choices such as the Audi A4 Avant and BMW 3 Series Touring. Its aerodynamically-efficient exterior look is complemented by a modern interior, which has a huge freestanding touchscreen in the centre that controls the vast majority of features. As a car designed to attract business users, there’s a lot of clever online functionality to make motoring easier, while corporate drivers will also appreciate the spacious rear seats and boot that stretches to a massive 690 litres even with the seats up. What’s more, as well as regular petrol and diesel engines, the new Volkswagen Passat is available as a plug-in hybrid with an EV range of over 62 miles. This will deliver low company car BiK tax bills – and 50kW rapid charging functionality means drivers will be able to top it up more quickly on the move, too.

Volkswagen Tiguan

The new Volkswagen Tiguan has clean-cut lines that should help ensure it remains the firm's best-selling new car of all.

Type: SUV | On sale: early 2024 | Starting price: from £32,500

The Volkswagen Tiguan is VW’s best-selling car in the world and this all-new one aims to continue its position at the top of the tree, and a challenger to family SUVs from the Ford Kuga to the Kia Sportage. With a more streamlined look than the square-edged current model, the new Volkswagen Tiguan comes with a number of styling options to set off the bright colours and large alloy wheels. It’s more high-tech inside too, with a huge freestanding centre touchscreen that replaces virtually all of the buttons inside. A novel added feature is a configurable dial in the centre console, complete with built-in OLED screen. Volkswagen says the new Tiguan is larger than ever, as well as more comfortable, while the efficient range of petrol and diesel engines is now joined by an enhanced eHybrid plug-in hybrid, that’s set to offer a pure electric range of up to 62 miles.

Volvo EX90

2023 Volvo EX90 electric SUV
The new Volvo EX90 is expected to give a driving range of up to 442 miles.

Type: luxury electric SUV | On sale: 2024 | Starting price: £96,225 

The new Volvo EX90 is the pure electric successor to the Volvo XC90 seven-seat luxury SUV (which will remain on sale for a while as a plug-in hybrid). Easily the most upmarket Volvo ever, launch cars will cost upwards of £96k, with the top-spec version breaking the £100k mark. New Volvo EX90 will be getting one of the world’s safest cars ever though, one that comes with Lidar as standard, so it’s ready to go fully autonomous in the future. Clean and modern in its appearance, the new Volvo EX90 has an upmarket and sustainability-focused interior, plus cutting-edge infotainment technology from Google. It will be more spacious than ever, while refinement, comfort and performance will all set new standards, promises Volvo.
